The Holy Beggars

One thing about the Avenue is all the tzedoka personalities. There's this one lady there - definitely some mental issues going on. Anyway, I was walking by her and I gave her all my silver change. It was probably about a dollar. Well, she got so mad at me, she started screaming. Right there, on the Avenue. "I'm trying to make Rosh Hashana and this is what you give me? GIVE IT TO YOUR MOTHER!" And she threw it back at me. It was startling and embarrassing. Part of me felt indignant. Another part felt ashamed.

What was G-d trying to tell me?
